About to embark on a fulfilling journey.
I’m so grateful to have found TGN a few years ago & love being involved in this global community. Now that I’m retired, I’m looking at other ways to give back to my local community. Last year I signed up for an email, that keeps interested people informed about what’s going on in my area re the environment/food production etc with local council. One thing in particular caught my eye. Ozgreen’s Resilient Communities Program. I did some reading, applied, had an interview and was accepted as a VCF,( volunteer community facilitator.)
Training starts next weekend, with a 2 day intensive course. From there we have 2 zoom meetings per month and one community presentation a month until October. Topics include, Fire, Water, Energy, Economy/Infrastructure, Food & Community Health. There are 2 of us for my local area that will work together to implement strategies on the above topics, with a coordinator. As VCF’s we deep dive into each topic, each month & explore what is happening locally & globally. Share concerns & form visions for a positive future.
It is a free program, that I thought would nurture me & put me in touch with like minded others, whilst trying to impart resilience to my local community. I’m a little excited to be starting this journey & intend to keep my TGN community up to date with important news & actions that can be implemented no matter where you live on planet Earth. If you have been involved in something similar, I’d love to hear your story.
